BRUTAL groin strike nearly ends fight – opponent gets revenge

Saturday, January 13, 2018

Groin strikes are an unfortunate part of MMA and while groin protectors usually do a good job of minimizing the damage, you are still very well going to feel it.

In this video from amateur MMA promotion STRELKA, also known as Arrows Street Fight, we see an amateur MMA bout nearly end from a devastating knee to the groin, but instead, it only seems to fire up the recipient who comes back with a fury just as soon as the fight resumes.

Both of these guys waste no time and start throwing hard just as soon as the fight begins. The guy in the black shorts lands a couple of good shots initially but his opponent, the guy in the pink shorts, returns fire with a couple of brutal left hooks that clearly rock his opponent.

That’s when the knee to the groin occurs and while it is impossible to say for sure; when a fight isn’t going someone’s way and a groin strike happens it very well could have been intentional to give themselves a needed break.

That’s only speculation of course, but judging from how long it took the guy to recover, it must have landed pretty hard. Eventually, the fight resumes and the fighter in the pink shorts wastes no time and comes charging back at his opponent with a vengeance following the foul.

The project “Arrow. Street fights “started in the summer of 2011 in St. Petersburg. Anyone has the opportunity to take part in street battles without rules. For battles allowed only amateurs and semi-professionals. After a thorough analysis of the data and capabilities of the fighters, the jury forms approximately equal in strength pairs. In the battles involved men of different ages and social groups, which gives the project a truly popular and democratic character. [Source: YouTube]
